The School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research (SSPSSR) has a long and distinguished history, and is one of the largest and most successful social science research communities in Europe.
It has received top ratings in Research Assessment Exercises, and most recently had 70% of its work judged as either ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ in terms of its “originality, significance and rigour”.
This distance learning programme is based on a core of social science modules designed to encourage a critical and rigorous understanding of urban policy and its social impacts. The substantive content of the course is delivered through two linked modules on urban problems and policy – City and Community and Urban Policy – that provide an understanding of the ideological underpinnings, aims and outcomes of contemporary urban policy. A range of optional modules provides the basis for developing a tailored course in which issues of social policy, public commissioning, criminal justice policy, social ethics, environmental issues, health, risk or social movements may also be explored alongside the compulsory urban modules.
